First Friday: Humanizing Instructor Interactions
June 1 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm
This webinar is part of our June First Friday event. In this session, faculty will demonstrate how online instructors are going beyond announcements, discussion forums, and emails to establish regular effective contact and support a sense of community among learners. You’ll walk away with new ideas that will empower you to infuse your students’ learning experiences with your warm, human presence and support the needs of our most at-risk online learners. Denise Maduli-Williams will demonstrate how she uses a free app to record captioned videos with students while walking across campus and how she seamlessly shares the videos with her students on Twitter and Instagram. Kristen Nichols will share how she uses video to provide feedback to students within the Canvas SpeedGrader and Discussions.
Denise teaches ESOL and English on-ground and online at San Diego Miramar College and is excited about the impact of social presence and humanized experiences in online learning
Kristen is an English instructor at Coastline Community College in Orange County. She teaches online Freshman Composition and Creative Writing. She’s particularly interested in creating online classes where students truly connect with her and each other in a humanized environment.
